The ocean does not wake up and decide that its tides are going to change direction. For one, the ocean is a collection of collected beings, singular water droplets morphed together by the bounds of polarity and space. It would be quite impossible for each of these individual water droplets to suddenly decide that their direction is going to to shift, and all of those droplets to move in the same direction on an instantaneous basis.
Change is not instantaneous. The day you decide to make things different is not the day that change begins. Though water droplets lack the cognitive ability humans have, if in a hypothetical sense they did in fact decide to change the ocean tides towards a new direction, the amount of time it would take for the change to be uniform is undefined, and easily framed as an extensive process.
Life is full of changes. We are all water droplets on the face of our own oceans and the oceans of others. We cannot expect change to be enacted instantly. We all must work against the impacts of our own polarity, and find a way to sync with the polarities of our neighbors, and enemies.
Change within one's self is just the same story, as within our own droplet of water there are millions of tiny drops of water, with names like fear, regret, apprehension, and anxiety. Our own droplets must be trained to shift, pushing towards our change, our new tides.
We are a generation of water droplets that is looking for change. We have fought and forged our way through history to reach this point, gradually grasping out against a tide of hatred, misunderstanding, and false belief. The Millennial generation is a project that is still in growth. We are young droplets trying to move against an ocean of fed up ideas and old concepts. Our path to carving something new will not be instant, as changing the tides is not an easy feat.
We've gotten this far though, haven't we? We get to make our choices, influence our polarity, be the change that we need to push toward the right world that we want the next generation to live in.
We are the Millennials and this is our chance for change.
We are the Millennials and this is our fight.
We are the Millennials and you can be sure that we aren't backing down easily.
